Hello

Dr Jones :

Welcome to justanswer.

Dr Jones :

Can you please describe your symptoms in more detial?

Dr Jones :

detail?

Dr Jones :

When did this start?

Customer:

about a month ago.

Customer:

were very managable at first with sdvil and tylenol.

Dr Jones :

Anything that triggers this?

Customer:

No it comes on VERY quickly and now is quite severe

Customer:

it lasts for about 10 mins then relaxes to less severe pain . It seems to come in waves.

Dr Jones :

From symptoms it seems more related to nerve than teeth.

Dr Jones :

I really doubt grinding teeth causing this.

Customer:

It seems to me that it not my teeth. They hurt but it moves from tooth to tooth and throughout entire area. I had a panarex that showed no absess.

Customer:

The pain often leaves my cheek bone feeling bruised. I can not lay on a pillow on my left side or hold my cell phone to my ear.

Customer:

who should I see

Dr Jones :

From symptoms I think possibility of trigeminal nerve neuralgia seems very likely.

Dr Jones :

Symptoms seem quiet typical of this.

Dr Jones :

A consultation with neurologist can surely prove helpful.

Customer:

Who do I see?

Customer:

Thank you
